Double Dr Martins Outfit Part 1

Outfit Details
Patent Dr Martins- £90 Dr Martin
Pinafore- £10 Primark (old)
Hat- £2 Primark
Leather Jacket- Miss Selfridge

If you have been a reader for a while you may remember the double gingham post Rox and I did, we both owned the same skirt so Rox styled it her way and I styled mine my way. We have decided to do something similar with our Dr Martins. 
Rox has gone for a a 90's feel outfit with the an overall dress hybrid...the pinafore. The pinafore has so many uses so is a great item to have in your wardrobe. Paired with the DM's and a beanie it takes me back to my childhood but is so relevant to fashion now.
On another note I am so pleased with these photos, they are my first golden hour pics I have taken and literally took ten minutes which is the quickest time I have ever taken outfit pics in. Make sure you keep a look out for how I style my Dr Martin look.

The Christmas Jumper Edit

Well it's fireworks day so clearly I can now post about Christmas right? I love a Christmas themed outfit so I have scouted online and put together some of my top choices for you lovely lot.

1. Gingerbread Jumper- Miss Guided- £15
2. Light Up (yes it actually lights up) Jumper- F and F- £20
3. Reindeer Jumper- Rakuten- £14.99
4. Pug Jumper- ASOS- £32
5. Cat Jumper- ASOS- £18

I could not help but include the flashing light' jumper from F and F, it just makes me think of Bridget Jones (did you hear they are making another one?). I am in love with the Gingerbread jumper it is just too cool to not be in my wardrobe ;). Hopefully this has helped you in finding your ideal Christmas Jumper, the great think about them is you can dress them up with a skirt and over knee boots or just chillax with some skinnies. Have a fabulous day and enjoy those fireworks if your popping out to see any. Happy Birthday Weeze.

Oversized Outfit ft Primark

Outfit Details
Culottes- £5 Primark 
Shoes- £10 New Look (similar)
Top- Topshop (old)
Socks- £1.50 Primark

Currently obsessed with oversized style and culottes, my collection is slowly growing.

I have also included some of my lovely birthday treats including my Olivia Burton watch and my stunning Nordahl jewellery.

A/W 15 ft ASOS & ZARA

A new season has begun so I thought I would share my A/W picks from two of my fav places to shop, Asos and Zara. I cannot help but be drawn to the new trends hitting us this autumn fluffy coats, bold prints, more boho loveliness and tailored pieces.

Zara A/W 15

The Gothic Lace Top- £39.99
The Gothic Lace Skirt- £49.99
The Tailored Long Blazer- £49.99
The Tailored Check Trouser- £29.99

Red is going to be a big colour this season. To really work this trend either mix different shades of red together or block it all with one single shade. Top the look off with black boots and simple accessories. For ideas to help inspire you take a look at Christian Dior's catwalk pics from A/W fashion week.
I love lace, so gothic lace is something I cannot wait to replicate myself. The skirt and top above are a great example of how to transfer gothic lace to work wear, it still has a classic look with a slight rebelliousness feel about it.
Another workwear trend that pops up every year but with altered versions is tailoring. Oversized blazers will be taken to extremes with large cuffs and big collars. The Zara outfit I have chosen is slightly more subtle in another trend returning this A/W, the check print.


The Graphic Print Co-ord Blazer- £52
The Graphic Print Co-ord Culottes- £38
The Patchwork Suede Fringe Cape- £19.50 (sale)

I have two favourite winter items boots and coats so this Sheepskin themed coat from Asos is the stuff made of dreams. I am hoping more colours will appear in this style as I would love a bright, vibrant, fluffy coat to wrap myself in. 
Graphic prints are all about standing out in a crowd so the graphic print co-ord is ideal for this. The large oversized print is complimented by being in more subtle colours so the print does all the talking. However you can take it to extremes with this trend and go for some real colour pop prints.
Boho style is not going anywhere (thank goodness) so fringe will be everywhere especially in the cape form. This patchwork one from Asos is currently in the sale and I can picture it brightening up sooooooo many outfits. Need, need, NEED!

So there you have it, the trends I am excited about this season. What trends are floating your boat?

Luxemme Limited Edition Two Piece Outfit*

Outfit Details
Olivie Lace Trim Two Piece- £35* Luxemme
Open Back Shoes- £10 Zara (old)

The lovely people over at Luxemme got in contact with me to see if I would review one of their limited edition two pieces. I choose the Olive Lace Trim Two Piece as I could see the potential of not only having a beautiful going out outfit but also how each item could be worn individually. The skirt with a chunky knit and over knee boots for a dinner date look, with the top being paired with my mom jeans and plimsols for a more casual outfit (expect to see both these outfits cropping up on the blog). 
When the two piece arrived I couldn't believe the quality of the product. It is really well made and worth every penny. My friends and family who have seen the two piece have all asked me where it is from, and I know I will be buying from Luxemme again. This two piece has so much potential and is just a really nice quality item. Make sure you check out what they have to offer. There is also meant to be a heat wave on the way so you will still be able to wear any of their two pieces as an outfit and then mix them up with other items for the colder weather. It's a win, win situation!

Flying Fashionably*

 I am one of those people that plan’s every outfit for my holiday including the one to the airport. For me there is nothing wrong with flying fashionably as long as it is comfy as well. So today’s post is all about what to wear to the airport as well as remembering those all-important hand luggage rules from Purple Parking.

There are a few items of clothing that I feel are perfect airport items; a maxi dress or skirt, culottes or flairs, flatforms and a chunky knit. The chunky knit is because we all know 9 times out of 10 we leave the UK cold or we come back to it cold, so having a chunky knit to hand will make sure we are not covered in Goosebumps waiting for the bus back to our car.

Maxi Dress or Skirt

The maxi dress or skirt, are great because they look fashionable but are also comfortable wear. They also save up some space in your case because they can be worn again when you are on your hols. I love to throw on a maxi dress or skirt when popping down to breakfast or in between trips to the pool. Flatforms for me are also essential, they are comfy to travel in and great once you get on holiday because can be used for day to night outfits, they are a big MUST for me.

Flares or Culottes

The culottes or flares are another great airport item because again they are comfy but very on trend. Make sure you choose soft, airy fabrics, as you want to be able to move with ease in them. These,de like the maxi skirt can also be used on your hols. I love to pair my culottes with some killer heels for dinners and the flairs with crop tops if we are hitting a club.

Once you arrive at your destination you still want to look and feel great. Making sure you have some chewing gum or mints in your hand luggage will help make sure your breath still smells fresh after a long flight. Another great tip I have is to make sure in your hand luggage you have Stila Convertible Colour for Lips and Cheeks from ASOS. We all know travelling can be tiring but you want to look your best for when you arrive at your hotel and having a make up item you can use on your lips and cheeks will help brighten your face up again. Don’t forget to follow these great hand luggage tips from Purple Parking though, as we all know how stressful it can be when your luggage weights too much, you don’t want any more extra expenses you want be able to chill out and relax.

Life Update and Holiday OOTD

Well it has been a while hasn't it. I thought I would share with you what I have been up to and why I have not blogged in over a month, with an outfit for good measure. So in the last month I have been on holiday, got a puppy, been to secret garden party, attended two wedding and got a new job. It has been the busiest month I have had in a very long time.

The Holiday

Glenn and I rented out a villa off a family friend in Camposol, Spain for a week and hardly did anything but chill. We both really needed it because the last year has been a hard one. The villa was perfect with our own pool and BBQ, plus we rented a car that I drove (only almost went the wrong way round a roundabout twice, I think thats pretty good) so we could do a 'little' exploring.

The Puppy

The day after we got back from our holiday we picked up Ishka (she is currently asleep on my lap as I am writing cute) our pug puppy. Now I have wanted a pug for about 8 years now so it still all feels a bit surreal, and although it is hard work I am loving every minute. She has a lot of character, snores loudly and apparently does not like the rain (I do not blame her). If you follow my instagram I am sorry for the pug spam but I am afraid it probably will not stop.

The Job

So I am leaving PRC and moving to a company called 3AAA's. A bit scary because I have been at PRC for five and half years but I will only be teaching the digital marketing and social media apprenticeships which I cannot wait for. This also means I have even more reason to work harder on my blog and photography website. So expect more posts coming your way.

The Outfit

Last but not least I will end with a little outfit post. It is one from my holiday and hopefully when someone tells the sun it is still AUGUST I will be able to wear something like this again.

OOTD Details

Skirt- £3 Primark
Lace Top- £3 eBay
Sunglasses- £5 Vintage
Sandals- £12 F&F

So theres my little update. Hope you are all well and look out for some more posts popping up on Style With Friends.
